“Blueberries and Pain” is the latest offering from the multi-talented Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and dancer Kailaya. This vibrant yet intimate self-reflective composition showcases Kailaya’s diverse talent and opens 2023 on a note of vulnerability and authenticity. As Kailaya explains, “Blueberries and Pain is the story of my on-going healing. It symbolizes the strength in vulnerability and the human connection that comes with being honest about our struggles. It is a friend to me on a hard day, and I hope it will be the same for others.”
Following on from Kailaya’s debut and sophomore singles “Lately” and “Outrageous”, which have already garnered thousands of streams and praise from tastemaker sites such as Jammerzine and Bong Mines Entertainment, “Blueberries and Pain” is sure to be another hit. Kailaya found art as a creative outlet when she began struggling with depression and turned to songwriting as an escape. Realizing that both sadness and joy were part of life, she allowed her emotions, both good and bad, to drive her writing and as a result, Kailaya found her unique soulful, vintage R&B sound with her silky vocals and jazz-infused guitar.
Inspired by artists like Daniel Caesar, Snoh Aalegra, Nina Simone, and Summer Walker, Kailaya writes every word of her lyrics and every note of her songs from an authentic and genuine place. Through music and dance, Kailaya learned to accept herself for who she was and to finally feel that she was enough. With art at the core of everything she does, Kailaya is ready to make her mark in the entertainment industry. “Blueberries and Pain” is a must-listen for fans of R&B, soul, and vulnerability.
